Wouldn’t it be great if you could get $1 to do the job of multiple dollars? Are you wondering how this could be possible? Well, stick around to the end of this blog, because today we’re going to talk about multiple duty dollars and how to get your money to work harder for you and your family.
For most of us, our income is limited every month. We only have so much money coming in, so it’s important, and this is why we always preach:
It’s not how much money you make, it’s how much money you keep that really matters.
It’s also very important to make that money as efficient as possible – to make it work as hard as possible for you and not for the other guys.
Let me share with you an example of a client who got hit with some extraordinary expenses. He has two children. His first child was a junior in college, and for the first two years, no problem. $60,000 – he was easily able to afford that out of cash flow. But now when he had the second child in school, it was going to cost him $120,000. This was really choking his cash flow. He felt suffocated and the things that they had been accustomed to doing previously now became difficult. So he called me and said, “Hey, what can I do to get some cash flow relief?” So when he came to us, he was feeling suffocated. There was no way he got another $60,000 out of his cash flow this year. But what we gave him was cash flow relief. And that cash flow relief started by having him borrow against his existing life insurance policies to pay for college.
Instead of taking $120,000 out of cash flow to pay for college, he borrowed $120,000 against his life insurance. The $60,000 that he was easily able to afford went back into the policy to pay for policy loans and all we did in essence was extend his amortization schedules. But he was able to do this because he had access to his money. We got $1 to do multiple jobs.
How do we do that? Well, the same money that he was using to pay for college, $60,000 per year was now paying for college, paying for life insurance, a disability waiver benefit, chronic illness, terminal illness, and retirement supplement. That’s $1 doing five or six jobs. That’s the power of multiple duty dollars.
The moral of the story is we transformed this guy’s problem into an opportunity. If you’re in a situation where you’re feeling stuck and suffocated financially and are looking for some creative ideas on cash flow relief, schedule your free strategy session today.
And remember, it’s not how much money you make, it’s how much money you keep that really matters.
